Symbols are useful, especially in crafting. Why? Because it would be damned difficult to crochet 3.14159 26535 89793 23846 26433 83279 50288 41… well, you get the point. Much, much better to just use the symbol. Then you can even make a pair of ’em!
I’d have to say that these ornaments represent the least intimidating (and most adorable) bits of math I’ve ever seen, and considering that I’m a hardcore lit geek (ugh, math hard), that’s saying a lot. It could be those little eyes, though, and those teeny-tiny smiles.
In fact, I may even prefer these ornaments to actual pie, which is maybe saying even more. But I’m also pretty sure that cute things boast zero calories. And if that’s not true? Please let me live in my state of blissful ignorance.
